Scary Flash of Life Before Your Eyes

Four deer crossing the highway.

A semi truck coming towards us.

I thought he saw them. I thought he would slow down.

But he didn't.

It happened so fast.

I do not want to think what would have happened if I hadn't shouted at Russ "there are more! there are more!" and he hadn't started slowing down before we got to the crossing. Those two seconds...

I thought the third deer would stop.

I thought they would all make it.

I thought I would never stop crying. For the deer. For what could have happened.

Today I am (still) grateful for those two seconds.

  1. Oh wow. I'm sorry you had to see that, & I'm so glad you are safe.

  2. Oh. My heart was in my throat just reading this. I'm so glad you are all okay!

  3. Man am I ever grateful for those 2 seconds! I was sick reading this.
    Love you!


I would love to hear from you, even if it's just a quick "Hello"...Comments make my day, dontcha know!
